Employee Support Fund

With the support of Leeds Hospitals Charity, we are pleased to be able to offer financial support to individuals who find themselves suffering financial hardship. Perhaps their household income has fallen or they've been landed with an unexpected bill?

Anyone working at one of our hospital sites can apply for support, including bank and locum staff, however you will need to be able to clearly evidence how you are in financial difficulty. 

Applications will be considered on the basis of the information provided on the form, therefore please ensure you provide as much detail as possible explaining your situation.

When considering whether to grant an award, an assessment will be made on the severity of the hardship and to what extent you have already taken steps to try and alleviate the hardship i.e. contacted your union for support, citizens advice, the Employee Assistance Programme and reprioritised your expenditure.

To apply for the fund complete the following online application form or download the application form and budget planner. All completed forms to be sent to 

Please complete this form in full to the best of your knowledge along with the accompanying budget sheet. Failure to do so may result in a delay in the panel’s decision.
